I currently have a Apple MacBook Pro "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13" Mid-2010 model and for almost 6 months, I have been letting it sit with a battery service warning. I already replaced the battery once after getting the battery service warning and have been avoiding replacing it for as long as possible (with hopes of replacing the laptop itself). Currently, I just let it sit with the charger plugged in most of the time, because when off charger, battery life is < 1hour.
My main question is, does the macbook slow itself down or handicap itself when the battery service warning is present?
Additionally, this is the battery information under system information
Charge Information: Charge Remaining (mAh): 1663 Fully Charged: Yes Charging: No Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 1663 Health Information: Cycle Count: 817 Condition: Service Battery Battery Installed: Yes Amperage (mA): 0 Voltage (mV): 12405
